Be Alert for a New Immigration Phone ScamPosted by admin on Jul 20, 2012 in Immigration Enforcement, News | 0 comments
The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) has received reports of a potential scam aimed at aliens. In this scam, a person purporting to be a USCIS officer calls the alienAny person not a citizen or nationalA person owing permanent allegiance to a state of the United States., asks for verification of his or her name and address, and says that there is a discrepancy with the alienAny person not a citizen or nationalA person owing permanent allegiance to a state of the United States.’s “A” number. The scammer then tells the individual to send a sum to Western Union to clear up the discrepancy.
If you receive such a call, please report it to the Federal Trade Commission at this link.
